THE MAROON Volume XV Z-257 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LA., FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 1938 No. 26 'POP' PRIMARY SET FOR WEDNESDAY Annual Popularity Poll Gets Under Way This Week Student Council Inaugurates New System of - Voting; Nominate For Eight Titles Students in all departments of i the university will go to the polls Wednesday to vote in the primary of the annual Students Popularity contest, sponsored each year to select the eight "most" students of Loyola. Voting- will take place between the hours of 12 and. 1 p. m. Those nominated in the primary will vie in the finals, one week from Wednesday. The three students receiving the largest number of votes in each of the sections, Most Popular, Most Handsome, Most Active, Best Dressed, Wittiest, Best Athlete, Most Popular Coed and Most Active Coed, will compete in the final balloting. Balloting this year will be held according to classes with* freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors in the various colleges and separate polls. This order will prevail for both the primary and the election, according to A. J. O'Donnell, Jr., president of the student council. This action by the council will undoubtedly eliminate much of the campaigning that turned the contest into a farce last year, Peter C. Beach, junior arts council representative said. The arts and sciences polls will be placed in Marquette hall, professional school polls in Bobet hall and music school voting baxes in Ronald McDonald hall. Council members will be in charge of the voting. The decision to hold the contest this year was reached at the regular meeting of the Student council, held Sunday morning, O'Donnel said. There had been requests made" to discontinue the poll. Scholarship Award To Pre-Legal Men Planned By Frat Delta Theta Phi Key To « Be Presented At Convocation Next Session; Toj Make Award Annually To increase interest in the study of pre-legal subjects, the Loyola chapter of Delta Theta Phi, national legal fraternity, will award a key to the outstanding pre-legal student in the university, it was announced Wednesday by Neckley M. Ferris, dean of the chapter. This key will be presented annually to the male freshman student in the Loyola school of law who attains the highest average in his law preparatory courses. To be eligible he must have completed at least two years of pre-law work at Loyola university. Evening division students are also eligible, Ferris asserted. Official announcement of this year's winner will be made at the first convocation of the next school term, when the award will also be made. "The action of Delta Theta Phi in making this award to the outstanding student entering the law school is a commendable demon- its interest in legal education;'" Dean James T. Connor of the law school, said. The idea will no doubt act as a stimulus to more diligent study by those planning on a legal career, he further indicated. The key, to be presented by the Edgar H. Farrar Senate, the Ley v la chapter, will be called the Delta Theta Phi Pre-Legal Award, according to John J. McCann, chairman of the committee in charge. Others on the committee are Harold A. Ainsworth and Alfred J. Bonomo, Jr. The official purpose of the award will be the "stimulation of an increased interest in the dissemination of information preparatory to the study of law; to foster in greater degree self-preparation in pre-legal study to the end that higher scholarship and legal learning will be advanced; to promote the progress of Loyola university." To determine the average of candidates, the number of quality points will be divided by the number of credit hours earned during their entire course at Loyola, with the exception that only resident hours here will be counted. Students who have pursued four years of pre-legal work may not count work in their senior year in computing their average. Any course in the college of arts and sciences which is considered as pre-legal by the university will be recognized by the judges, who will be the officers of the fraternity together with a member of the faculty of the school of law. This is a picture of the solid gold key to be awarded to some outstanding pre-legal student by Delta Theta Phi. Inscribed upon the key is the crest of the fraternity, the name of the university and the fraternity, and the name of the award. The students name will be inscribed upon the back.

Dudenhefer, Loyolans Lead In Wolf 'Best Dressed' Balloting Clothes make the man. Whether they do or not often matters little, but at present a fellow named Frank Dudenhefer, Maison Blanche shirt salesman, is attracting more than his share of attention from Loyola's lovers of the sartorial because he persists in mimicking Hollywood's Adolph Menjou. Puzzled? Well, it all concerns that big city-wide poll to determine Who's Who Among New Orleans' Beau Brummels. It that Mr. Dudenhefer is tops in the Loyola balloting, with Rudy O'Dwyer, a Wolf who dresses with the best of 'em, running him a good second. Following on the heels of the leaders are such dashingly-attired figures as J. Wells Young, Loyola dental student, in third place, Mar- cus Labiche, ex-Loyolan, Seymour Weiss, prominent hottel man, and Sodality To Stage Religious Drama The Strange Death of Cardinal Xavier, three-act religious play, will be presented under the auspices of the Professional Ladies' sodality Sunday, March 27, at 8:30 p.m., in Marquette auditorium, it was announced this week. Written by the Rev. Michael P. Kammer, S.J., the drama deals with the influence of St. Ignatius of Loyola over St. Francis, and reveals how he made the latter forsake his life-long ambition of becoming a cardinal to go as a missionary among the pagans of the East. Director will be Dr. Alfred J. Bonomo, moderator of the Thespians.Included in the cast of six are J. Scott Mathews as St. Francis Xavier, Neckley Ferris as Francis Cardinal Xavier, Raymond Guillot as Francis the Pilgrim, John Screen as St. Ignatius Loyola, Ralph Sanchez as Peter Fabin, and Lawrence Bourgeois as Miguel. 3 Represent Loyola At French Reunion Two students and one member of the faculty of Loyola represented the university at a reunion honoring Causeries Du Lundi, New Orleans French group, which was sponsored by Le Cercle Francais of Louisiana State university in Baton Rouge, Wednesday. The Rev. Louis G. Soniat, S. J., moderator of Le Cercle Francais of Loyola, George Malochee, president, and Verdun Daste, executive board member, were those making the trip. The reunion was featured by a lecture given by M. Emile Lauvriere, doctor of letters at the University of Paris. Hanemann Toj Speak Before Club Members Senior Theses Reports In Commerce, Finance Are Read D. R. Hanemann, employee of the Banks and Bankers' analysis department of the National IJank of Commerce, will be guest speaker of the Commerce club at a meeting of the organization Monday at 8 p.m., in Marquette auditorium. In conjunction with the plan of the American Institute of Banking to acquaint the public with a greater knowledge of banking ! facilities, Mr. Hanemann will speak on the following subjects: The Story of Money and Credit, Protecting- Your Bank Deposits, Why Some People Cannot Borrow Money From The Banks, and Banking as a Vocation and Profession.Mr. Hanemann was a member of the debating team which represented the New Orleans Chapter of the American Institute of Banking, arid won the national championship in June, 192' J. The lecture, which is open to the public, is another of a series of talks by prominent business men of New Orleans. C. Fenner Hodgins, vice-president, arranged the program for Monday evening. Reports on senior theses in Commerce and Finance were given by Wallace Treme, president of the club, and Jacob Haney, respectively, at a meeting held Monday. D. R. HANEMANN Military Education Boon To Colleges, Says General Owen By William Cooke "Military education combines physical and mental training and is a boon to any institution that has it," Major-General Allison Owen said in a recent interview. "It may seem a bit drastic, but I think there should be Boy Scout organizations in the grade schools, cadet corps in the high schools, and Reserve Officers Training corps in the colleges and universities. ' It is a democratic principle that the defense of the country rests upon the shoulders of every individual. I consider it as much a civic duty as voting or paying taxes." Questioned as to what he thought of an R. O. T. C. unit at Loyola, General Owen replied, "I think it would be a great thing both for the students and for the school." Did the general think that army discipline would interfere in any way with Jesuit discipline? "Most assuredly not. Jesuits priests have held offices of rank in the Army, and today, there are R. O. T. C. units at Fordham and a number of other Jesuit schools," he said. Although military life is the general's chief interest, he is horticulturally inclined, and is president of the Parkway Commission. IJe was greatly surprised at the way the carnival crowds respected | the newly planted azaleas on the mound at Lee Circle and along St. j Charles avenue, and expressed a belief that New Orleans would soon become the azalea city of the Southland. Plan Student Pharmacy Ass'n Babin, Thompson Organize Branch of National Organization A student branch of the American Pharmaceutical association, national organization of pharmacj ists, is being organized in the colj lege of pharmacy, it was announced Tuesday by Dean John J. McCloskey. Leo J. Babin and John F. Thompson, students of pharmacy, who are organizing: the brand'., have been appointed temporary directors of the proposed campus group. The association was first organized at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in 1852, for the purpose of uniting educated and reputable pharmacists of the nation for the maintenance of the high ethical standards of the profession.Application for the establishment of the Loyola branch will be made in the near future, Babin said. "After the branch shall have been established, the activities of the club will include social as well as events pertaining more directly to pharmaceutical aims and projects," Dean McCloskey asserted. Fraternities To Organize Sports Loop Plans for conducting an inter-fraternity sports league next year, and tentative arrangements for softball competition between four academic fraternities on the campus, to begin in the near future, were formulated at a meeting of the Pan-Hellenic council Wednesday night in the office of the president of the university. Proposed by Sigma Alpha Kappa, local academic group, the idea was accepted unanimously by the Classes To Vie In Campus Night The campus night presenting programs staged by the freshman and sophomore classes in the annual competition for the Hausmann tropjiy will be held soon after the Easter holidays, it was announced Wednesday by Louis Wilson, chairman of the student council committee in charge of the competition. Permission to stage the event was granted by the Very Rev. Harold A. Gaudin, S.J., president of the university, after a meeting with Wilson last week. The action automatically lifts the ban imposed on nil campus nights last year. So far the freshmen have won the debate and the basketball game, while the sophomore class has been victorious in the tug-o-war. If the freshmen win the campus night it will clinch their hold on the trophy. But should the sophomores win, it will be necessary to have a Softball game to decide the winnjr. JUNIOR DENT CLASS TO VISIT LEPROSERY Members of the junior class in the school of dentistry will be guests of the staff of the United State Leprosery at Carville, La., March 30, it was announced this week by the faculty. The invitation was tendered by Dr. F. A. Johansen and Dr. Prejean, resident dentist of the colony and a graduate of the Loyola school. In the form of a motorcade, the trip will be under the direction of Dr. Neil Gorman, professor of pathology, and Dr. Harold W. Peterson. Cafeteria: Me, I like my coffee with sugar it it, not with salt, pepper and other junk that many practical jokers and cafe doodlers put in your sugar bowls. It isn't necessary to post a guard to stop the petty, vandals. Just get us some suitable containers with lids on, that's all. Then maybe me and Iggy will he able to drink more of that coffee of yours. Really like it, outside of the sugar problem. ME.
